Full Depth Reclamation (FDR)

THE PROBLEM

Your low volume road is beginning to see increased traffic patterns and significantly heavier loads. These conditions do not necessarily warrant a costly reconstruction effort, thus making it ideal for full-depth reclamation.

THE SOLUTION

Suit-Kote’s Full-Depth Reclamation process is an innovative roadway rehabilitation process. It  is a low cost method designed to get your road back into shape by immediately improving strength and helping to restore the grade and cross slope to its original specifications. 

THE PROCESS

Cost-effective base course for low volume roads.

Grinds existing road with the addition of Portland Cement, emulsified asphalt or other approved stabilizing agents into a uniform mixture.  Design may also include optional add aggregate.

•Provides necessary strength, uniform grade and cross-slope for a variety of specified wearing courses.

THE BENEFITS

Improves ride quality.

Less costly than reconstruction.

In-place construction minimizes hauling materials to the job-site.

Provides a more uniform mixture throughout the stabilized structure.

Allows for the introduction of approved stabilizing agents into the sub-base to help immediately strengthen and prolong the life of the road.

THE APPLICATIONS

• Low Volume Roads                      

• Shoulder rehabilitation
